Did you hear, if Donald Trump becomes president, he will change New Year’s Day to June 14, his birthday, and call it Trump Day, a day to outdo any other?
Given the nature of the reform, both in terms of communicating such a fundamental change to a large population and dealing with critics of the new calendar, some Europeans continued to celebrate the new year between March 25 and April 1. April fools were those who still celebrated the holiday in the spring, and were the subject of pranks and ridicule by those who observed the new year months ago.” by TALAL AL-KHATIB
Another weekly tip to inspire students:
Teachers, parents ask your children to make up their own idea of the origin of April Fools’ Day before sharing the history with them. Depending on their ages, encourage them to write creative stories or draw pictures to share their thoughts. I welcome their creations at http://www.barbarahurwitz.com
